Can you imagine the outcry if he'd beaten Plushy on components? The skate was a bit scary, but as you say, not disastrous. I thought he looked off when he stepped on the ice and that feeling got worse on his opening pose. My guess, like the other posters, was too little sleep, and Chiddy is not without nerves. At least he has plenty of time now to figure it all out before the next step. Happy to see him marching today.
